    I have been recently saw some pessimistic post on other forums.
    I.E. :

    1) doctor X get 240s / 240s and CS pass all first attempt
    Do some observers or research apply to medium and low tier IM
    Programs and don't match
    PD: doctor X need visa

    I get why people with really low scores and multiple attempts don't match . but when I saw doctor X profile I wondering how he failed to match and other IMG matched with lower scores. Besides connections (wich is really variable and I don't have now ). What NON US IMG can improve to match ?

    I got a decent score 243 on step 1 and working on step 2 ck . actually not coming here to get reassuring about scores .
    I am a NON US IMG 2014 grad (December 2014).
    Let's suppose I get a good score on step 2 ck and pass CS first attempt.
    All within this year. How can I get closer to match in a low competitive specialty (IM or Neurology) ? Asking this because
    It seens than score don't assure you a position.

    Any advice is highly valuable.
    Thanks

    This forum is for the posting of open training positions, not for general advice.

    General Residency forum just down the way has a sub forum called ERAS/NRMP which is probably best.
